Annotation:This publication contains examples of recent efforts by public and private colleges and universities to expand financial assistance to low- and middle-income students. While expected family contribution (EFC) is often zero for low-income students, it is important to note that these programs require that any calculated EFC be met. Additionally, “student budget,” which varies by institution, includes tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, board, transportation and personal expenses.
